With Flagships, the Commission proposes a new PARTNERING MODEL for long-term European co-operative research. This model is built around a large Core Project and several Partnering Projects. What is a Core Project ? What are Partnering Projects ? You'll find the anwsers in our short overview & presentation on the FET Flagship Model.

The Flagships are bringing together excellent research teams across various disciplines, sharing a unifying goal and an ambitious research roadmap on how to achieve it.

In order to address their ambitious objectives Flagships require:

  1. Setting up large-scale partnerships that bring together the leading researchers from a large number of research organisations, including academia and industry;
  2. Commitment to a strong science investment over a long time period that cannot be carried out alone by the Commission or any single Member State.
